2 White Cheddar Smashed Potatoes

I fell in love with the white cheddar mashed potatoes at Ruby Tuesdays and had to make a home version.

I found a large bag of baby red potatoes at Costco and used some of the Kraft white cheddar blend that I had left from my White Cheddar Mac N Cheese.

My sis-in-law made a similar recipe and used her Kitchen Aid mixer. I was so excited to try and make this!

I think I heard the term 'Smashed' potatoes on America's test kitchen. This was the perfect accompaniment for my father-in-law on Father's Day served with my husband's smoked brisket.

It was so good! Creamy. Smooth. With a bite of white cheddar.

I will definitely make this again. And eat the entire batch.

  1. Wow, these sound decadent and good. Do you own a food mill? I have one made by OXO. Ever since I saw Ann Burrell (Food Network) show how to use a food mill to puree the potatoes (I even toss garlic cloves into the cooking water) I have not had to peel potatoes again, and I can stir in the ingredients. I will try this recipe using my food mill-- so easy!

  2. Hand me a spoon, I'm going in!! I would definitely fight to eat the whole bowl. This is one of my favorite side dishes!
